One of the easiest set of votes for me so far. But it also may be the first time since the polls are on that I love all the albums listed. Some quality stuff this week :beer:

Actually surprised Malevolent Creation got 40% of the vote against Darkthrone, figured it would be about half that.

Brackets updated!

This was the first week where all four bands I voted for made it through! I have a feeling that won't happen again.

Like I said in that other thread, Legion getting bounced has to be the biggest upset so far.

AGREED, THE CALL OF THE WRETCHED SEA IS A GREAT ALBUM


Another wrong album that I believe I nominated because of the one per year format that OP asked for. Call of the Wretched Sea might win this for me, but maybe not. I wold have to think more, because that Satyricon is amazing. Easier to vote for it aginst's Boats, but this was in my top 3 the year it came out and it's completely killer in it's own right.

Someone submitted this album and it was the only Ahab album submitted. It, like Wretched Sea, are highly rated on Metal Archives. Who was I to decide between the two when only one Ahab album was submitted? Wretched Sea was rated higher but only by 8%.

didn't mean that you shoe-horned it in or anything, i just thought it sounded like something that would be one of your favourites based on what little i know about your tastes in music

Worst week yet. Could care fuck all about any of the album that aren't the Immolation, and Immolation looks like it'll lose already.

Hey OP, are you taking too much shit about these polls that you won't do another challenge once this one is completed? I hope not! Because it is fun and may be one of the remaining things that keeps this place going. :)

I don't think anyone is giving OP shit beyond the " why was album X picked over album Y? question

OP, I want to be clear. I am really enjoying the bracket, and appreciate the work that you put in. The one per year format cause me to pick albums that I love, but that arn't the best by the band a few times. If you had not structured it that way, I would have struggled to sort though stuff though, and maybe not even submitted a list. So, what you did worked for me. I might criticize some things in this deal, but however you did it it would have had flaws. Too much stuff, too much ground to cover. So, thanks, and don't take anything that I say regarding your choices as criticism of you. The shit isn't perfect, and never would have been. It's still a lot of fun though, so thanks for your work. I do hate you for not putting Primordial in, but that's just how shit rolls. :)

Brackets updated, concluding the Round of 64! We started this in January! YEESH!

RE: All of the posts above.

I was simply giving my explanation over the Ahab decision. I didn't feel like I was taking heat - or have taken heat - for doing these brackets. Don't worry, team. I'm just fine.

Pretty much this, but I know it's all in good fun.

. . . right? Guys?
